Rapidly Evolving Auditing & Regulatory Environment

Auditing as a profession is evolving rapidly, thus it’s imperative that you must continue to enhance your skills set to improve audit processes that will adhere to regulatory changes. To value add, auditors must provide a wider focus than just compliance and financial auditing by assessing operational efficiency and assessing risk and control measures.

2 Day Masterclass in Risk Based Project and Performance Auditing (40% PIC Funded)

We are proud to offer this cutting edge 2 Day Auditing Masterclass for all accounting, finance and auditing professionals. Facilitated by Professor Yawar Zoeb (Fellow CPA) who specializes in Corporate Governance and internal auditing across Australia and Asia. He brings with him over 20 years to help you gain hands-on practical skills based on the latest international accounting and auditing standards.

Day 1: Conducting Risk-Based Project Auditing

Most often than not, the scrutiny of projects can provide assurance that projects are managed in a way that mitigates risks. Without monitoring, projects can spin silently out of control. At some point, it may be apparent that the project is over budget, late or both. However, by this time, resources and time have generally been wasted, often without achieving key project goals. Such costs can run into the millions. This masterclass allows you to learn what to look for so you can successfully plan, manage, audit and monitor projects.

Day 2: A Practitioner Approach to Performance Auditing

Performance Auditing provides a systematic and structured approach to assessing organizational performance, including how well the organization is meeting goals and objectives. Widely used in government agencies and MNCs, performance audit can also unlock ambiguity in interpreting results and help an organization focus on planning, achieving and reporting on its goals and progress. This masterclass focuses on critical planning aspects, techniques for conducting performance audits, and standards and techniques for reporting audit results using a case study approach.
